The Jewish Education Project
May 15, 2019

Many teens today consider their parents among their best friends. Dr. Betsy Stone joins The Jewish Education Project's Suri Jacknis and Shariee Calderone for a webinar conversation on Gen X parents. Generation X describes people born from the mid-1960’s to the early 1980’s; a group that experienced shifting societal values and growing divorce rates. Explore the opportunities and challenges of working with today’s parents of teens. Understand how they were raised and how they relate to their children. Learn how to involve and support these parents in order to meet their needs.
